    OC Quarantine Activities

    So, what are you planning on doing whilst sheltering in your place?

    I just went though a box of random hardware, I've separated into piles the large construction screws, drywall screws, wall anchors, wire nuts, etc. I'm taking a break before I separate the small wood screws from the machine screws and nails. I never thought I'd get do to this!!!

    Finally getting around to installing RJ45 jacks in the upstairs bedrooms and putting an access point in one of them. WiFi has been sort of weak up there. I may also wire the garage and put an old 802.11g router in there so I can watch how-to-videos on a real computer screen vs. my phone.

    Put away my backpacking gear from my hike a couple weeks ago. I hung it to dry in my daughter's room (the one who's stranded in the UK) and just sort of forgot about it. Probably pre-organize it for our next hike in Oct.

    Try a couple of new alcohol stove designs.

    Finish my mandatory online training for work.

    Maybe walk the dogs 2x a day now.

    Sort and consolidate my fishing gear.

    Cleaning up clutter, getting rid of stuff I don't need or have duplicates of. (Looking at you, CD collection!)

    I have a couple hundred of SF of tile that I could lay in my kitchen. We were supposed to order cabinets to install, right before the pandemic happened, but we didn't now I have no idea if we can even order them, if the company is making them, or if by the time they get here we will be allowed out of our house.

    I have a bunch of appliances coming this upcoming week (maybe depending on shelter in place restriction being placed by Inslee), and I have no where for them to go either.

    So far I spend my time yelling at my kids, telecommuting, and getting my post count up on MTBR, just like any good american does.

    For now, no changes since I've been working from home for 20yrs. The waiting game is to see if the company survives, just waiting for an email or phone call.

    My ankle is getting better so hopefully by Monday I can ride again.

    Plan for the weekend is to get rid of old crap from the closets and cabinets, and do some bike maintenance.

    JCD did you see this???

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/19/us/ca...der/index.html

    California and New York ordering EVERYONE with non-essential services to stay at home indefinitely!?!

    This is going too far. I think in the inner city, yes, things should shut down. But most of NY State is cow country, the population is very sparse, the virus is not going to spread there like it would where the density is thousands of people per square mile. You go more than 50 miles away from the coast and California gets pretty rural too. In the cities, yes. In the suburbs next to ranchers and farmers...I dunno if this rule applies so much.

    The California Governor says that this will not be legally enforced. But what about mountain biking. Are people going to harass you if they see you have a mountain bike in the back of your car or truck? Will they shame you for having fun during this time? I mean, mountain biking is not the same as young people going to a party when they are told they should not congregate. As long as someone doesn't shuttle with 4-5 guys in the truck, then what is the big deal? If you drive out of the city limits and ride by yourself or a few other dudes that drove themselves, realistically the chances of spreading or contracting the virus are zero. You are practicing social distancing...to the extreme. The rule should be don't go outside unless you can social distance. Mountain biking complies with that rule. I'm going to mountain bike until an authority tells me I can't. This is not being selfish, it's being realistic. Statistically it's not going to hurt anything because it can be a rural, relatively remote activity. It's simply not the same as partying or going to Disneyland.

    This should probably go in the home improvement thread. I have a large walk-in closet that needs finish trim. The problem getting it done has been that one wall is a convex arc (12 feet along the circumference) that is formed by a circular staircase on the other side. Looking at flexible moulding options (NOT rubber cove -- something with profile), and I have a few ideas. It's challenging because most products are 8' in length, and I expect a scarf joint will look like shit; even if it's hidden from view by clothes, I'll always know it's there.

    On that wall I installed 2 courses of clothes hanging rod by using curved shower curtain rod. The brackets I used to hang the rods have flat tops so I want to put shelves on top of them -- but those will have to be cut to curve with the wall.

    Seems like an opportune time to make a run at it. HW stores are "critical industry" so they'll be open.

    What to Know About California’s Stay at Home Order: Requirements and Exemptions

    All Californians must stay at home, but there are exceptions, such as essential activities like getting food, prescriptions and health care, care for a friend or relative, walking the dog and taking outdoor exercise such as walking, running or hiking. When people do go out, they should practice social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus and not gather in large groups.
    Emphasis mine. In case anyone wants to be pedantic about cycling not being included in that list, I'll just ride my SS since I'm walking it half the time anyway.

    Just working from home for me. That's ok, it could be a good year for journal publications, if I end up working out of office for almost a month. Might even try to write to me graduate work into a publication, but probably won't go that far.

    My lower back has me hobbling like an old man, which sucks because I need to hang drywall on the kitchen ceiling...

    I was at the drywall anchor/ wire nut sorting phase two days ago. I've since moved on to camping gear sorting. When we finally do get back out in the world I'll be organized; camping gear is now arranged into backpacking gear, car camping gear, river trip camping gear, and of course, our camping trailer is "prepped". There's surprisingly little overlap between the camping disciplines, at least as far a gear goes.

    Then I'm onto the flyfishing gear, rigging dry fly rods, nymphing rods, and streamer rods. Also tying flies and building leaders. I intend to be on the water a lot in the upcoming weeks. River is in the back yard.

    I need to update some adjustment features on the manual machine for + and 27.5 or 29 wheels.

    Inbetween all these activities, will be continued OCD sorting of all the crap in my garage and attic. If I don't fill a dumpster by the end of next week, I'll be disappointed in myself.

    I wish I had some wheels to build, that'd be a great distraction right now.

    Too bad we're a few weeks too early to get the garden going, but if this goes on as projected, the garden is going to be awesome this year.
    I would advise not taking my advice.

    Been doing various back exercises from her for a few weeks now, and finally feel GOOD, not just ok. This is a great time to take time to fix yourself.

    Thanks I'll watch this over lunch. Part of the problem is that I sit at the computer a lot during work, then I don't stretch or anything before I go biking. My own laziness is catching up with me.

    I need to go to the grocery store.

    I'm retired, live out in the country.
    Yesterday I did trailwork.
    Day before that I went riding.
    Day before that I sat around, looked at MTBR, did laundry, blah, blah.
    Day before that I went riding.
    Day before that I went riding.

    After grocery shopping today, I'm going riding.

    Ride more, problem is with so many off work the trails will be crowded even during the week. I’m off today and bored as hell. I can’t sit at home nor do I have any real chores pending. It snowed last night, I’m out driving around. About to head up to the mountains for a Friday [Sunday] drive. I’m fortunate to live where a drive can be recreational instead of just a necessity with plenty of views, sights and critters to see. Speaking of which this herd of elk blocked me from leaving my driveway this morning. Lol

    So you're without a kitchen during all of this? That'd be a bummer!

    I went by a job and picked up drawer boxes, cabinet doors are delayed because of the CV, don't understand why because there's no restrictions other than schools and gyms and stuff closed. They have their master bathroom torn up, ceiling being painted today and tile going in next week. I just need to stain a lacquer the vanity, which will probably be my last job for a while.

    I'd try to connect the two pieces before installation. I had a stair skirt that joined a piece of base on a landing (think it's in the home improvement thread) where I used pocket holes on the back. there was no other way to get both to lime up properly.

    Well, I build plastic model kits anyway. But I can still go to the trail and ride. I'm doing that tomorrow morning. I still have to go to my job during the week. I'm in defense/aerospace so we still have to keep making airplanes. The business isn't losing customers. Traffic is lighter gong to and from work. Funny how the price of gas is dropping and looks like the demand for it is now dropping too.

    But that should only take an hour or so each wheel.

    I've got all sorts of hobbies that can eat up lots of time, I've just been lacking the motivation, it's sometimes hard to think about fun stuff in these uncertain times. I had dumped that box of hardware out on the bench to pull out all the cabinet hardware screws, I had to go install some pulls on a hutch I painted a while ago. While I was waiting to go I figured I'd sort the rest of it, and that kinda took my mind away from things and made me think of starting this thread. I think we are all going to need some distractions to keep us sane!

    I'm in the Bay Area and people are still going out -- the trails have hikers and mountain bikers. I live two blocks from the trails and they are getting good use. Not sure what city slickers are doing and I'm thankful for small town living.

    That's an interesting thought, thanks. I'd have to make sure the fasteners aren't so long that they prevent the joined pieces from adhering to the curve.

    Another thought I had was to install a divider board at the midpoint of the curved wall and use it to affix the closet rods, instead of the bracket that's currently there. Then I'd only need to deal with 2 ~6' pieces of baseboard.

    I thought about getting non-profiled pine base and kerfing the shit out of the back to make it bendy. Top cap would hide the kerfs.

    I asked a friend in San Diego what he has been doing. I didn't want that much of a truthful response. As far as proper social etiquette I will leave you to your imagination. Wash your hands.

    A bulkhead [divider] would be a good option. If you did join two pieces of base I was thinking perhaps something thin like a stir stick glued to the back side would probably be flexible enough, in addition to pocket screws or sum such. A shit-ton of kerfing seems like it'd be a lot of work.

    I used to try and report those, but got tired of taking the time to do so. Perhaps I will now!

    When they call about your car's warranty expiring, ask them which car? Tell them you have four cars.

    Kewl ideas.

    A shit-ton of kerfing seems like it'd be a lot of work.
    Well I've got nothing but time! Also, purpose-built flexible baseboard is about 4x as much as solid pine.

    Edit: Also need to make sure whatever I use matches the rest of the closet for the 3 other walls.

    Or tell them that you have 312,000 miles on the car when they ask for the mileage. That’s an instant hang up every time.

    A “toaster moment”. Wherever did you get that from? BTW I forgot where that was posted.

    California and New York ordering EVERYONE with non-essential services to stay at home indefinitely!?!

    This is going too far. I think in the inner city, yes, things should shut down. But most of NY State is cow country, the population is very sparse, the virus is not going to spread there like it would where the density is thousands of people per square mile. You go more than 50 miles away from the coast and California gets pretty rural too. In the cities, yes. In the suburbs next to ranchers and farmers...I dunno if this rule applies so much.

    The California Governor says that this will not be legally enforced. But what about mountain biking. Are people going to harass you if they see you have a mountain bike in the back of your car or truck? Will they shame you for having fun during this time? I mean, mountain biking is not the same as young people going to a party when they are told they should not congregate. As long as someone doesn't shuttle with 4-5 guys in the truck, then what is the big deal? If you drive out of the city limits and ride by yourself or a few other dudes that drove themselves, realistically the chances of spreading or contracting the virus are zero. You are practicing social distancing...to the extreme. The rule should be don't go outside unless you can social distance. Mountain biking complies with that rule. I'm going to mountain bike until an authority tells me I can't. This is not being selfish, it's being realistic. Statistically it's not going to hurt anything because it can be a rural, relatively remote activity. It's simply not the same as partying or going to Disneyland.
    It's funny how people are reacting to the state order (Cali).

    All outdoor activities, in the name of maintaining one's health, are welcomed. I am seeing more families out going for a walk. It's actually refreshing to see this. The trail system near my locale was loaded with hikers/walkers/bikers/runners today. More than I have ever seen in all the years I have been using it. And everyone was smiling and friendly.

    The order suggests that we avoid groups of 10 or more people and that we maintain social distancing while in the company of others. In my state, that distance is 6 feet or more apart.

    interesting to see how many of us are purging crap from the house, and doing home improvement stuff....both things are high on my list....

    being a life-long introvert, I have more than enough activities to keep me busy...

    there will definitely be a LOT of playing the drums and bass...must refresh the Rush and Iron Maiden song play alongs...

    tons of books to read, and sports cards to organize and log into the database

    will be playing lots of Dungeons and Dragons online with my nerdy friends

    also have to teach from home, so I still have to work, I just don't have to get up early and put on dress clothes...sort of a dream come true!!

    Will definitely be riding both MTB and BMX...

    And they are talking about closing trailheads that are popular like this also

    Follow the order and “self quarantine”. Don’t be a selfish bastard and put others at risk. A millennial attitude towards this will only make things worse.

    I was going to mention cutting out some drywall behind where the stir stick would sit so the base is flush to the wall, which I guess could do with pine also. And with pine you'd get a stronger glue bond with the stick. You could possibly notch out the back of the pine base and glue in a spline, which could possibly be kerfed. I don't think it would flatten the curve.

    *Edit: You can probably get pine long enough for your needs.

    I've been working from home the better part of the last 20 years, so little has changed for me. Yesterday's snow and sloppy trail conditions are doing more to confine me than any quarantine orders. That said, lack of socializing outside of work hours will allow me to get some things done:
    -- Finish tax prep (even though the deadline is extended.)
    -- Rebuild the fork, change tires, and clean the winter grime off the drivetrain on one bike.
    -- Sort the massive donation pile in the garage into piles for the bike co-op, Habitat for Humanity, and Salvation Army.
    -- Finish my fireplace wall project.

    My my, I wonder what would happen if you ever talked to a millennial face to face. Get a grip. I know way more Boomer or Gen X folks who think the virus is a hoax or "just the flu" and refuse to be inconvenienced. All my pals are taking this pretty seriously while trying to live our lives. Seems like what most people here are doing.

    Not yet but they are thinking about it. Funny, on one side if the coin they are waiving all National Park fees to let people get out, yet they are also talking about closing popular trailheads.

    They just announced waiving National Park fees and the town of Estes is protesting that they want Rocky Mountain National Park to close to keep tourists from around the world inundating the small town of Estes [that sits below the park] as they do every year.

    Ha, what would happen? They’d go cry to mommy and daddy? There are ass hats in every generation. My comment was directed at the thousands of spring breakers gathering on the beaches that were crying because their spring break party plans were ruined because of this world wide emergency.

    Sounds like Gen Z to me. Everyone I know is mostly hoping they keep their job(s) through the economic crisis, and I'm on the relative lower end of Millennialism.

    Yeah, something like this is what I had in mind for the base. Since it's recessed in the back I wouldn't need to notch for a stick or spline (?)

    But like you say, I'm pretty sure I can get it long enough so a scarf joint is moot.

    It’s just a reference, don’t take it personally. I as well am worried for all. I’ve gave larger than normal tips to carry out orders in the last week. Feel terrible about the situation some are facing. I have a niece and a nephew who both lost work as well as both of their hubbies. Scary stuff for sure.

    If you had a router table or a Table saw dado blade you could notch out the back for a bigger spline, or maybe it'd be a tenon? You could do a scarf over the tenon.

    I foresee much bike maintenance in my future. I just did new brake pads and a bleed on the SS 29er. Long overdue.

    I know other bikes need bearings, wheel service, wheel rebuild, new BB's, new rim tape, etc. all kinds of stuff. Too many bikes, lots and lots of repairs all the time.

    I think one 12' piece should doo eet. If I F up and break the 12-footer, I can always cut it down and use the surviving parts on the shorter straight walls. It's going to take a number of days to empty out the closet anyway, so I have a little time to think about it.

    house is cleaner than it's been for a LONG time.

    Started power washing the deck yesterday, but used up all of my "yard tool" gas. About to make a run so I can get more to finish power washing the deck and mow the lawn.

    Might build a little mtb trail through the yard finally. been thinking about it for awhile, but now's a good time to actually do it.

    Just got back from a trail run, on the mtb trails. I've been really busy with work this past week, working from home on a speculative project due Monday. Getting into some stuff I've never done before and learning some new tricks and coming up with some hacks in some software I started using about half a year ago. Also messing with Adobe Premier Pro, may have to get into that some more.

    Taking a break and then I need to see about getting the 2nd raised garden bed in place. Thinking I need to shoot some pix of spring emerging and post them in the botany thread.
    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.

    Got some drive-thru beers from a couple of local breweries, picked up some cigars from the smoke shop/tap house, and I'm set for a few days.

    Downtown Lodi was a ghost town. Sad, really. Hope these small businesses can stay alive during this virus crisis. Life as we know it may be changed forever.

    Airlines, cruise ships, hotels being bailed out- where's MY fukcing bailout, mutha fukcers??? Screw those azzoles. I don't want $600, I want to be fukcing BAILED OUT.

    I have plenty of 12ga bought for a clay shoot party that didn't happen and loads of .22 but my 10/22 is at the smith right now. But the pellet gun is locked and loaded for those pesky squirrels that keep eating my wiring harness.

    Taking so time to clean the guns. Have some friends firearms that they want cleaned so I got that to do as well.

    Drove into Lodi this morning, and as I was leaving, noticed a line outside a small business of about 20 people waiting for it to open. Didn't notice what store it was. Later today, I drove by again. It was a gun shop.

    There is a guy that sells ammo next to the gas station near my house. I buy from him from time to time. Has good prices. He was out there today and had a line of maybe 40 people.

    Buddy of mine posted this on FB of a Yoda cake he made for his daughters 12th birthday. He hopes restaurants and grocery stores go back to normal soon so his cooking doesn't traumatize her

    That's going to look great!

    Was just looking around at my space, might be a good time to change things up! I hadn't thought about it till now, and your pic came to mind. I've probably got enough paint to redo the whole basement, maybe even pull out the carpet and LVT it.

    Ha, some good times down there on a dirt bike. If I remember right we drove through algodones to get to Mikes Sky Ranch we called it but it’s actually Mikes Ranch in the Sky. Some of the big BAJA races go right through there so it’s naturally a MX or 4X4 dream location.

    This might be silly, but I've been thinking maybe I should've had a more apocalyptic piece before now. Like, not that I really need an AK, but you know some crazy mf already got them. Or maybe something that's not a long gun.

    Wife and I started an online support group for our local community which is starting to grow, so that should take some time to maintain each day. There are quite a few elderly and infirm people near us, and I am being consistently amazed at how people are stepping up to offer help. It is truly heartening
    Weather is perfect to ride, but I am back off the bike, hopefully temporarily. Seems like each time I get over one ailment, another pops up to take its place. It is getting old!

    I used to do that all the time. I used to put a Dutch Oven inside the electric oven with the loaf on a piece of parchment paper. Remember cutting an “X” in the top and brushing with butter. That stuff was so good I had to give it up. Nothing like the smell of it in the house.

    Wow Net, the upper part of that is really chunky!!

    Is that a new trail? Looks like it was cleared for the power lines or something.

    Thanks for doing your part!

    It's always been there, but I went out on Friday at lunch with Arthur, and we did some maintenance...cleared a downed tree, etc. We swung by here on the way out, and I made a roller so that the last section on the top part before crossing the road was rideable.

    Before, you had to take a by-pass to get around that last section right before the road crossing.

    So far, I'm the only one to try the roller yet...it's kinda steep. Arthur went down before me, just so he could watch me do it. He was skeptical that it was actually do-able.

    I just thought it might be new because it looks like that whole strip was recently cleared, I did see some weeds towards the end. Maybe they do that every year?

    Those powerlines have been there forever, so the cut has been there forever, too. Most guys don't like riding it, it's more like free-ride than a nice, defined piece of singletrack.

    It suits me just fine, though.

    Very nice Net. I was struggling to find the trail in places. Definitely a chunk fest, way to get after it. Thanks for keeping the natural sounds in along with the music overlay. And, nice DJ signature pano in the beginning.

    IDK, for a split second, right in the beginning, there was a whining noise in the audio. Then it happened again. I'm going "sounds like an e-motor"... why would Net need one of those for a DH run?

    Thankfully a couple seconds later the music kicked in and I realized it was an intro for a music overlay.

    I almost judged you Net, just for a second.

    sadly, I don't think most First World humans are strong enough/smart enough to see why that would be a positive thing. From what i read, see and hear, people are feeling "butt hurt" abut their way of life being interrupted, and will probably try to make up for it when the bans are all lifted....

    After walking the dogs I went to a nearby Amazon locker to pick up a 30-pack I ordered a few days ago.

    Situational awareness is key, especially in that sketchy part of town. My annual OPSEC and anti-terrorism training came in handy.

    We've been hiking the back woods a bunch this week and have decided to reclaim the overgrown bike trails. It will probably take me to the middle of May to get the main loop done.
    Well my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

    Weather is perfect to ride, but I am back off the bike, hopefully temporarily. Seems like each time I get over one ailment, another pops up to take its place. It is getting old!
    I was thinking about doing something along these lines- I have a small SUV I could help folks with, you have any suggestions how I could help folks out?

    I was out with the Redstone trail boss doing some maintenance today at lunch. We decided to hike over to the check on the falls. It rained a ton last night.

    This is strictly rain run-off. There is no water source up there.

    Get out there and film that waterfall again. By the way what camera did you film that with? Came out super clear.

    I'm making progress on my 45LV project. I got it running and actually drove it around the 'hood. Hell, if this goes on long enough, I may finish it before summer. Except, of course for money... Oye!

    We are helping some elderly people in our street with their shopping. Our direct neighbors are very limited in mobility and so they were first on the list. Then we have another elderly lady who we have been friendly with for many years who is also incapacitated after surgery, so we get her stuff too. There is a local community website called 'NEXTDOOR' which may be in your area too, and there is a vibrant support network for people on there too. People post up their needs, and whoever is able to will respond, be it with help in the house, bringing groceries or whatever. Thankfully the grocery stores are still fairly well stocked, you can usually get some things you need, at least enough to not starve!
    I also started a group online a few days ago for locals, which is growing steadily, and which has useful tips for what to do at home, and online links for helpful and positive resources.
    Also I would suggest you check with your local food bank if they need help running things around. We do some work with our community food bank prepping food sometimes, and they have needed help in the past getting things out there. Right now they are coverd, but that could change as things tighten up.


    Edit: I might add we are lucky enough to be well stocked with gloves and fairly well with n95 masks, because of my wife's illness, so we are able to interact with people to a very limited degree. At least enough to get their groceries to them, and to be able to go into stores when we can to get stuff. We are very careful with cleaning up afterwards tho. Detergent bills for cleaning outerwear will be doubling! We did have some masks that we did not need, so those have gone to the health center.
    It's all Here. Now.

    i'm seeing lots of kids in close contact in my 'hood - playing basketball, wrestling around, not avoiding contact. PARENTS - tell your kids that they can get the virus and they can spread it. teach them to give a Sh*t. this isnt going away. spreading it doesn't help.

    best buy has a no-entry policy. you have to order on-line and pick up at the door. store employees bring your order out to you. it's a little in convenient if you need to shop, but it's ok if you know what you want.

    It's pretty much at the bottom of the mountain. The water pools up in various places until it reaches maximum overload, then comes cascading down the sides of the mountain.

    That particular spot is pretty dramatic.

    Turns out I actually have less free time now than when I'm at work. Our schools did an amazing job rolling out the distance learning program, but keeping my autistic ADD daughter on task will take a large measure of vigilance. The state has school closed until 4/20, but the Governor said today that it's more than likely that in school instruction is done for the year.

    I did my netwurker wiring today. Home run / router to living room and 2 bedrooms.

    3 for 3 on correct signal paths

    2 for 3 on remembering to put on the strain relief boots before crimping the connectors

    Edit: I don't do this for a living. But I did leave my phone charger at a Holiday Inn Express last month.

    My neighbor set this out in the trash.
    I dont have a road bike, and its about my size, so I am going to see how well I can clean it up, get some new tires, and ride it...

    I already have the chain and cogs sitting in a vinegar/salt bath to break up the rust. I know that 6 speed chains and freewheels are cheap, but I want to see how good I can get this bike without spending any money...

    Next I need to see if a buddy had the right freewheel tool since its smaller than a normal one...

    I may put a flat bar and a thumb shifter on it.

    We were hiking at lunch today, around that trail I posted last week. Got some iPhone footage, hopefully it shows what GoPros tend to do to your footage (The GoPro Effect) which basicly flattens out all the terrain you are riding.

    The second clip is where we are trying to figure out a line so you don't have to go to the extreme left around the tree at the first ledge like I did in the ride video.

    The third clip shows the approach to the rock-roller I made. Arthur made a smooth(ish) line way over on the far right side of that ledge.

    A little OT but not entirely. Not a project but I did run some errands today (all by bike).

    I supported a few small local businesses that were open, well, half open. Picked up a pound of coffee beans (best dark roast beans on Earth!!), bought a takeout burrito from the best burrito joint in town (so so good!), and grabbed a 4 pack of craft beer from a local brewery. All were takeout only.

    Not that this is special in any way, it's what I would normally do on any given week, but when the underpaid employee looks you strait in the eye and says "thank you" as you hand them a tip, it really punctuates how much it is appreciated, and how lucky we should all feel if we're not in a position where the future is uncertain.

    I've been shopping at the grocery store and cooking at home for the last two weeks for the most part. I specifically went out today to support a few local businesses. I was surprised at the reaction I got from this small gesture.

    Up next... dropping off suspension components for service.

    It amuses me very much that when you simply type Quagmire into Google the first thing that pops up is "Big Arm".

    Will do. Any of my controlled tests are from a while back so I'll have to find the notes. But since then some better designs have come out, both commercial and DIY, so they're pretty OBE.

    Here's something to get started (Jan. 2020): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pexDNx5LtdM

    There's a link to all the stoves in his description. I'm going to try the cat can stove that starts at 13:17. I have an old basic design that works OK but since then they've added the tomato paste can.

    I also want to try one made from an empty asthma inhaler canister. There are YT vids on this as well, but I plan to build it around a 2.5" dia. x 1" H aluminum sample container jar that weighs 13g with screw-on lid. The jar itself *should* hold the inhaler, a mini-BIC lighter, and some aluminum standoffs or stainless wire that I would use as a pot stand. The bottom of the jar would be the stove base and priming cup.

    My current go-to is a Redbull version of this chimney stove, called a "mini-bull:" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5uYyt-fT9o

    On my last hike it boiled 8 oz. of water in about 5 minutes, and 1/2 oz. of alcohol will continue burning for another minute. Note that my meals only take 8-10 oz. of water to rehydrate. So even the mini-bull is a bit overkill which is why I want to try the inhaler design.

    I've tried the smallest tea light candle cup I could find, which barely registers on my 1-g scale. Not much you can do with it as far as burner jets or a focused chimney flame. It did boil 8 oz. of water before burning our but barely, IIRC.

    One more thing is that some stove designs work much more efficiently with a properly designed and tuned conic wind screen. That's a whole other science in itself and while I have cut a couple (from aluminum catering pan lids I got at Smart & Final), I had to draw the line at that level of time suck.

    Oh and my small pot is one of the discontinued 12 oz. Heineken keg cans. So my current kit (that plus the minibull stove, conic wind screen, lighter and small fuel bottle) is 73 grams.
    Go Fact Yourself.

    Ok, as a public service, I have performed a scientific experiment and gained some important information for you all. I kept reading about toilet paper hoarding and asked myself, how much tp does one need? I saw a few estimates that seemed way off from my guess.

    So, last week I replaced a roll in one of our bathrooms that only I use and wrote the date with a sharpie inside the roll. That date was 3/18/20 and this was done after my morning dump. Today, 3/27/20, I replaced the roll, also after my morning dump. So a roll of tp lasts me 9 days.

    A few notes:
    • I am a once a day dumper
    • This was a standard Costco "Kirkland" double ply tissue roll, "425 sheets per roll"
    • I used a little more paper each day to blow my nose
    • Twice I used some to squash house centipedes in accordance of our treaty of "if you stay in the basement, I'll leave you alone. Come upstairs and you're getting squashed".
    • I did not make any attempt to wipe conservatively nor was any job left incomplete.

    Note: Your mileage, er, footage, may vary.

    Anyone ever hear of gas buddy? It's a web site that you enter your location and it shows you where to find the cheapest gas.

    https://www.gasbuddy.com/

    I'm waiting for a similar web site to crop up..."Toilet Paper Buddy".

    It's only a matter of time.

    There's a link to all the stoves in his description. I'm going to try the cat can stove that starts at 13:17. I have an old basic design that works OK but since then they've added the tomato paste can.

    I also want to try one made from an empty asthma inhaler canister. There are YT vids on this as well, but I plan to build it around a 2.5" dia. x 1" H aluminum sample container jar that weighs 13g with screw-on lid. The jar itself *should* hold the inhaler, a mini-BIC lighter, and some aluminum standoffs or stainless wire that I would use as a pot stand. The bottom of the jar would be the stove base and priming cup.

    Cool beans, thanks for putting that together .
    I know exactly the Heineken can you speak of, and can see that being a good vessel.

    We had a knock-down drag-out series of thunderstorms come through last night with heavy downpours, hail and high winds. I haven't seen any downed trees / limbs around my yard but I'm almost hopeful for something to clean up just to break the monotony.

    At least the hummingbird nest is intact. Mama's sitting on the eggs right now. I'm going to put up a feeder.

    With the reduced traffic maybe it's time to get the road bike out.

    Heh. I forgot where I saw it, but someone posted that after China lifted their lockdowns, filings for divorce went through the roof.

    Meanwhile, I had a big list of stuff to go get at Home Despot, went to get my keys and wallet, and realized nothing on the list is so urgently needed that I should go risk myself or others for it.
